This sounds like it can’t possibly be true, but it appears to be for real: A conservative group called One Million Moms objects strongly to a Geico commercial featuring a computer-animated pig in a parked car with an attractive woman.
To quote their web page on the subject:
Maxwell the Geico pig goes on a date in Geico’s new piggy commercial. In Geico commercial, the pig and a young female are in a parked car on a lover’s lane. The car is actually broken down, but while sitting there the girl appears to be turned on by the pig. She hints that she wants to make out. She is disappointed when she learns the tow truck is on the way and they won’t be able to “pass the time.”
“The Geico Marketing Team may have thought this would be humorous,” they go on to say, “but it is disgusting to see how the company takes lightly the act of bestiality.” They urge the reader to “TAKE ACTION” and ask Geico to “pull this offensive commercial immediately.” Oddly enough, they seem to have missed the fact that the pig is also naked.
Here’s the commercial, which Geico is not paying me a cent to run here. (On the other hand, if they want to pass on my email address to that disappointed woman, I’d be happy to show her a porcine good time.)
